Today, more than ever, there is truth in this: Many people have anti-wrinkle and dermal filler treatments on their faces, and never consider treating their hands. But hands undergo similar ageing changes to the face – largely volume loss under the skin, loss of collagen, elasticity in the skin, sun-damage, and pigmentation on the surface.
Volume loss makes the veins, tendons, and bones more visible. Loss of collagen makes the skin thinner and causes fine lines and texture changes. Sun-damage and pigmentation makes the skin look older and freckled or blotchy.
In fact, considering what we put our hands through with all the washing and chores that they do, it may be surprising that they don’t appear even more aged.
The good news is that most treatments that we do on the face can be performed on the hands as well. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), peels and skincare can greatly improve sun-damage and pigmentation.
Collagen stimulating fillers are especially effective at both replenishing lost volume and improving skin thickness and texture.
Treatments are relatively pain free and give very long-lasting results.
They say that whatever you do for your face you should do for your hands as well.
Nowadays, this is not limited to just rubbing excess skin care products over the back of your hands. It may be worth considering having a treatment specifically targeted to improving the appearance of your hands.
As always, consultations at Envisage are complimentary or bulk billed, so you can come in and discuss this or any other concern free of charge and without obligation.
